2 Samuel 7:17-29 - David Responds To Yahweh's Covenant

17 And when Nathan had told David all these words and all this vision,

18 then went King David and set him down before the LORD and said, "What am I, Lord Jehovah, and what is my kin, that thou shouldest have brought me this far forth? 19 And is this a small thing in thy sight Lord Jehovah, but that thou shouldest speak also of thy servant's house for a great while to come? Is this a law among men Lord Jehovah? 20 And what can David say more unto thee, seeing thou knowest thy servant, Lord Jehovah? 21 Even for thy word's sake and according to thine own heart hast thou done all these great things to make them known unto thy servant. 22 Wherefore, thou art great O LORD God and there is none like thee, neither is there any God save thou, according to all that we have heard with our ears. 23 And what one people in the earth is like thy people Israel? Which God went and delivered to be his people, and to make him a name, and to show them great and terrible things in the earth, before thy people which thou redeemest to thee out of Egypt, even from the people and from their gods. 24 And thou hast ordained thy people Israel to be thy people forever. And thou, LORD, art their God. 25 And now, LORD God, the thing thou hast said of thy servant and of his house: make it good forever and do as thou hast said. 26 And let thy name be great forever, that men may say, 'The LORD of Hosts is the God of Israel.' And let the house of thy servant David be established before thee. 27 For thou, LORD of Hosts, God of Israel, hast told in the ear of thy servant, saying, "I will build thee a house. And therefore hath thy servant found in his heart to pray this prayer unto thee. 28 And now, Lord Jehovah, thou art the God, and thy words must be true: for thou hast told this goodness unto thy servant. 29 And now go to and bless the household of thy servant, that it may continue forever before thee. For thou, Lord Jehovah, hast said that of thy blessing the house of thy servant shall be blessed forever."
